5.0 out of 5 stars You can feel the calories exploding =) July 25, 2010
By nctmac
After a couple disappointing workouts from The Firm, this one is a breath of fresh air!! It is a toughie. I absolutely loved the intensity of this workout. My HR (which runs a bit on the high side) stayed between 165 - 185 bpm! You will need weights, anywhere from 3-10 lbs. I began with 5 lbs., but ended up having to alternate between 3 lb. and 5 lb. throughout the workout.

Alison Davis-McLain is the lead instructor for every workout. Rebekah Sturkie & Emily Welsh are also in the workouts. Emily modifies for those looking to lighten it up a tad. I was hoping that the instructors would alternate since Rebekah & Emily are my favorites, plus changing instructors feeds my exercise add. Alison's cueing is right on, and she clearly explains what movements she is executing. She does a great job talking through each segment considering the intensity of this workout. I was absolutely breathless.

You have the option to customize your workout. If you choose just one, the warm up is featured before every segment. Here are the segments:

* 12-minute Kick-Butt Athletic Drills
* 12-minute Explosive Power Moves
* 12-minute Cardio Kickboxing
* 12-minute High-Intensity Moves

The warm up and cool down are about 4 minutes each. The warm up definitely gets your body warm....I was ready to stop after the warm up ; ) The cool down has some nice stretching - incorporating some yoga.

I've done my best to break down each segment. Alison adds onto the movements & repeats combos; I just am letting you know the basic movements in the combos. A lot of the movements are quick! Alison is good about giving a little time for recovery.

5.0 out of 5 stars Calorie Explosion July 29, 2010
I have done many firm workouts. Alison Davis-McLain is one of my favorite instructors because I like her routines, no nonsense approach, and accurate cueing. I was looking forward to this DVD and was not disappointed. You definitely create a calorie explosion! You will need weights (about 3-10 lbs) to get the most from the video. There are 4 12-minute sections that you can do separately or combine into one long routine:

Kick-Butt Athletic Drills
Explosive Power Moves
Cardio Kickboxing
High-Intensity Moves

Another reviewer has gone into great detail about the routines, so I will just add that they are typical Firm routines (lots of lunges, squats, and compound moves with weights) with a few new moves thrown in for variety. If you like the Firm, you will definitely like this DVD, or it is a great introuction to the series for newbies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant surprise! August 23, 2010
I loved this video! I was very surprised that the intensity was so high, after experiencing some pretty uninspiring videos from the Firm lately. I love Allison, she is my favorite instructor. She cued well, her energy was not over the top annoying, and she produced a very effective tough workout! My heart was racing the whole time, I want more videos from the Firm like this! Thumbs up!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! October 12, 2010
By MTGirl
Verified Purchase
I am a huge Firm fan who has tried several of their cardio DVDs. This is the best one I've done in awhile!! It's definitely challenging - I am an intermediate/advanced exerciser and each time I've done this workout (3 times now) I've walked away DRIPPING with sweat. It's fabulous! Allison's cueing is awesome and she's not as repetitive in this workout as she's tended to be in other videos (I love her....but she does make you do the same moves over and over and over....). This workout uses light weights occasionally, but they're really more for the purpose of upping the intensity of the cardio, so I would recommend doing this one on days where you're aiming for just cardio and save the weight training for another day. Be advised though - I'd put this on the same level as The 500 Calorie Workout (Kelsie Daniels)- different moves, less work with the weights, but just as challenging in its own way.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Direction for the Firm October 28, 2010
I am a 24 year old long time exerciser who grew up doing my mom's 'Firm' tapes. I used the transfirmer series to get back into shape after both my babies. Though lately the video's they have come out with have been gimicky and just weren't challenging at all. So I moved on to Jari Love, Amy Bento, and Insanity. I saw this DVD in target and decided to give it a try, after reading all the good reviews.
I love it! It isn't as super challenging as insanity, but you don't always want a brutal workout. It is fun, quick paced, and defnitely challenging even to advanced exercisers.
I hope the Firm comes out with more workouts like this! I would definitely buy more if they continue to make workouts this challenging.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid athletic style workout September 6, 2010
I purchased this DVD at Target on Saturday and tried it on Sunday. I must admit I was hesitant because some of the Firm's workouts are hit or miss. I do prefer the pre-firm workouts before Gaiam took over with selling you gadget, after gadget to perform the workout but this is strictly an athletic cardio routine. When I started from the warm up it seemed pretty easy but the pace of the workout catches up with you and you can easily burn 500+ calories performing this workout. Plenty of plank style workouts with pushups, jumps, tuck jumps, jumping jacks, various lunges, and a kickboxing routine. This workout is worth getting and putting in your rotation.

Not what I expected, the ads description was not enough to really understand how physically fit the user had to be.
